Today's good thing

Today's good thing: good day at work. Sort of a lazy day, too.

BTW, mystery solved about the new GA partial unemployment laws: "Historically all employers have been permitted to file such claims on behalf of their employees as a convenience to the affected employees. Now, employers with a negative reserve account balance will not be permitted to file partial claims on behalf of their employees. The employees will need to file their own claims for partial benefits on the agency website (www.dol.georgia.gov). Employers with positive reserve account balances may continue to submit partial claims on behalf of their employees."

Which essentially means Husqvarna lays off a lot.

They supposedly received a letter(all businesses who had to start doing this did) in early October about this. In addition to this BS proof of citizenship thing, they sprang this "you have to file your own claim" thing today. Then they vagued that up by sending out a confusing "instruction" sheet. I think they feel like people will decide it's too much trouble for one pitiful week of unemployment and give up. As usual, its the employees who suffer. This essentially means no paycheck for anyone who was off last week. Probably they'll get next week's paycheck before they get the unemployment check.
